Hear me out as I try to set the stage for this post:
This afternoon, I was watching football with my girl, and she was flipping through the channels during a commercial. I had trained legs this morning, so I didn’t have the energy to put up a fight:( Anyway, she stumbled onto “Kindergarten Cop” starring good ol’ Arnold. I had always heard that he had never had “ideal” biceps attachments, but I noticed it especially in this movie (or at least the few minutes that I watched). His attachments are much higher than someone who has what appears to be an upper arm that just blends with a forearm. I guess that makes it all the more impressive that he built such great upper arms and forearms.
That being said, I’m in the same boat. Although I have a decent peak in my biceps, they don’t have the “elbow girth” that really shows up with a short-sleeve shirt because the attachments are higher. I’ve also heard of this being a problem with lats, calves, and even quads (I have a hard time with thickness in the lower quads as well).
With that in mind, does anyone have any opinions on whether or not one can essentially work around these problems with certain training protocols and exercise selection? I’ve heard of placing extra emphasis on full stretch movements like preacher/Scott curls for the problem, but was wondering how everyone else has dealth with these problems.
